-Sale of non-core business enables USAU to focus completely on gold exploration
ELKO, Nev., Oct. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Gold Corp. (USAU) today announced it sold its subsidiary, Dataram Memory Corp. Dataram Memory Corp. develops, manufactures and markets computer add-in memory products for use with workstations, minicomputers and servers.

Commenting on the disposition, Edward Karr, President & CEO said, "The sale of our Dataram Memory legacy subsidiary is another step in our transformation to a focused junior gold exploration and development company. We view this disposition as a win-win-win: for U.S. Gold Corp., for our shareholders and for Dataram Memory Corp. I would like to thank our Board of Directors for their involvement in the process. We are looking at, and evaluating, several new potential opportunities in the exploration and mining sectors."
Global Alliance Securities, LLC arranged for this transaction.
The net proceeds from the sale of Dataram Memory Corp., when finally determined after deducting expenses associated with the legacy business and the sale, will be distributed, on a pro rata basis, to the Company's shareholders of record as of May 8, 2017.
